Vista will not re-connect to wireless after sleep/hibernation

Hello all,

I've exhausted all my expertise, and will be extremely grateful for any help you can provide. I have a Gateway MT3705 laptop that's running Vista Home Premium. When the computer sleeps or hibernates, the wireless connection will not reconnect to the Internet. I've updated (and rolled back) the wireless card drivers, turned off the Allow Windows to disable for power saving option, reset the TCP/IP stack, and set up a task to renew the IP upon system resume. Nothing will restart the connection short of a complete system reboot. The card in question is a Realtek 8185... Does anyone have any insight? I've included the HijackThis below.

Thanks in advance.

I don't see any malware in the HJT log. However, if you feel that this issue could be malware related please follow the instructions this topic and post the requested logs in the Virus, Spyware and Trojan Removal forum. :)
